NYC Green Policy: Give it a Kick in the Butt

Sunday, Earth Day, in New York City a woman throws a lit cigarette right in front of Trendy as she is coming out of St. Patrick’s.

In Thailand, “We want laypeople to recognize Lent as an opportunity to be closer with God. This year we have an anti-smoking campaign,” said Bishop Banchong. “Smoking is a danger to people who are near to smokers.”

Any dot gov can make a law or speech,
ah but can they make an effective campaign?

You can’t make people do the right thing no matter how many laws. Just check out New York City if you don’t believe.

Think outside the Butt, go gratis to the smoker and then say grazie for their kind act. See ButtsOut.

A waiter could have grazie’d a ButtsOut imprinted with the restaurant name to this flip flopper. Thousands of impressions would have been made.

Doing the Right Thing is FREE-dom.
